Desde Puerto Natales parten las expediciones hacia el Paso del Trueno, navegando los fiordos Resi y de las Montañas, en los rincones más australes de la Patagonia chilena.
The fjord of the Mountains is one of the many that make up the Chilean Patagonia. However, this imposing geography as a great alley enclosed between majestic mountains and glaciers comprises unparalleled beauty within the territory of the Kawesqar National Park , one of the last parks created in Chile.
A majestic and unexplored bend
The national park is a mosaic of glaciers, moraines, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, forests, wetlands and valleys that make up a virgin and unexplored ecosystem, a habitat of great biodiversity. Within its natural wonders, the fjord of the Mountains and the Sarmiento mountain range are molded in an ideal setting for trekking circuits, starting in the Resi valley, to enter the Thunder passage that runs through the fjord, to the bay of the Huiros, cross country through a valley of perennial forests, mobs, waterfalls and rocks. The Magallanes rainforest dominates the region where Magellanic coihues, Guaitecas cypresses and cinnamon are hoisted.
